TISD Meeting Makes School Tax And Budget Decisions

Those living in TISD could see a decrease in their school tax rate. Right now, the rate is $1.47. The board is looking at lowering that by four tenths of a cent to about $1.46.

"Property values have gone up this year, allowing us to still give raises, and keep the budget the way it is, while reducing the tax rate by four tenths of a cent," says Tosha Bjork, TISD Director of Financial Services.

The board will vote on the proposed tax rate and budget August 30th.
